i got me a brand new p3at today and i decided to fluff and buff it some, and now i have ran into a problem with the firing pin. When you put it back in, it has a cutout, should the hammer be in that cutout or should the hammer be behind the entire pin?

Should be behind the entire pin. The cutout is for the little screw that holds the extracter, it doubles as the firing pin retaining screw. Make sure you line it up so the firing pin moves freely.

a HA!! took me a while to figure it out, but ok its supposed to go all hte way in.. now i got it. 1 thing that does concern me also is it sounds gritty sounding when you push the pin in to make sure it can move freely, is that normal on a new gun?? or could ihave possibly not gotten all hte dirt out?
